Just a heads-up, but the recipe listing has the vermouth and whiskey volumes swapped.
I also strongly recommend the Misto olive oil sprayer for spritzing absinthe. I love that thing. Before I got it, absinthe seemed to take over my drinks no matter how little I tried to pour in.

Delicious cocktail, Robert.
I often have trouble with absinthe cocktails, as it can be quite an overpowering flavour and I have trouble getting out only a dash or two. I must find a dasher top I suppose…

Rhett, Another option would be to get a bottle with an eye-dropper top. You can often find them at some grocery stores that sell bulk items, as well as health stores that sell homeopathic materials, and various other places.

Oh excellent idea, thanks Robert!

Slight correction here… and it is totally my fault. As listed in the Old Waldorf, the recipe for this drink should be two parts of vermouth and one part of whiskey. I just had a mental lapse when I was making the drink. Sorry for that!
